I flew from Chicago to Tel Aviv via Paris. Since Air France was having problems at O'hare the flight was delayed and I missed the connecting flight to Tel Aviv. I had to pass seven hours at CDG Airport but found it to be clean and employees very friendly. I was given a free card to call my family in Israel to tell them I was coming on the next flight as well as a voucher for food. I wasn't happy about having missed my connection but this wasn't the airport's fault. On my way back to Chicago I had very little time to make my connection and the line at the security checkpoint was long but it went pretty fast. What irked me a little bit was that just before entering the plane my bags were turned inside out and checked again - this after I had just gone through security. What could I have possibly accrued during the several minutes between here and there?
